Re: How do I reschedule a failed recording NOW on a different tuner?

Easier than I thought. I didn't have a failed recording, just one that I started and stopped after a minute. Then I used some tools I've got and changed the recording rule's PreferredInput of 0 to 32. Reactivated the RecordedId and checked the tuner in use (it was my 2nd HDHR's tuner, which is 32.) ...

Re: How do I reschedule a failed recording NOW on a different tuner?

Turns out that ReactivteRecording just sets the reactivate column in the oldrecorded table and then pokes the scheduler. No recording rule changes. It has no affect on the tuners used. I'm going to see if changing the recording rule's tuner selection 1st and then reactivating works. I'm in the try i...

Re: Mythweb dependancy on external googleapis

Hi, A setting was added in 12/2017 that uses using googleapis by default. There is no GUI to change it. The following turns it off: curl --data Key=mythweb_use_cdn --data Value=0 --data HostName='' localhost:6544/Myth/PutSetting I turned mine off and checked two pages (didn't delete anything though....

Re: mythfrontend core dumps every time

Hi, You could take a guess and make sure /var/lib/mythtv/.mythtv/MythBrowser/cookiejar.txt is readable/writeable by the user running the frontend. The better answer for core dumps: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Debugging#Getting_a_Backtrace That will (should) identify the actual error. Unless it's obv...

Re: How do I reschedule a failed recording NOW on a different tuner?

Look at the SQL, or just to backend:6544/Dvr/GetRecordSchedule?RecordId=<the reactivated rid>
be able to use AddRecordSchedule to switch the input. On my
test, the type is Override Recording, ParentID is set, e.g. to the 'real'
rule.

Re: How do I reschedule a failed recording NOW on a different tuner?

Hi,

Try Dvr/ReactivateRecording?RecordedId=<the failed recording's recordedid>

%RECOEDRDID% was added to UserJobs/Events in June 2018. I haven't
tried to see if it's available for a failed recording though.

Re: myhthfilldatabase stopped grabbing listings

I recall a case where this exposed an error in the DB, so it's worth a try.
Don't post the output, as it displays your SD user/password:

Code: Select all

mysql --host=localhost --user=mythtv --password mythconverg --execute="SELECT sourceid,name,xmltvgrabber,userid,password FROM videosource"

Re: Playing recordings if the database is corrupted and rebuilt?

Backing up during while the backend is busy isn't recommended. You'd likely loose some 'under-the-hood' things such as commercial flagging. I run my backups at 6 A.M. I've read that others write a script to determine the next upcoming recording timestamp and delay the start of the backup 'til the ba...

Re: Playing recordings if the database is corrupted and rebuilt?

Hi,

Move the recordings to the Storage Directory defined in the Video Storage Group.
That may be: /var/lib/mythtv/videos/, but you'll need to verify your backend setup.
Playback from the Watch Videos screen, as opposed to Warch Recordings.

VLC can work with just the filename. I can't speak to Kodi.

I would suggest the full output from the configure command line
until the error (put in a pastebin, with a link to it here.)

Re: mythmetadatalookup Movie grabber not functional

Hi,

I see you're checking tmdb3.py, but the backend is using giantbomb.py (never used
that myself.) The grabber is tested (before running) like this:

Code: Select all

$ /usr/local/share/mythtv/metadata/Movie/tmdb3.py --test
Everything appears in order.
Your's tmdb3.py may be in a different directory.
